A Meme to Drool Over

My friend Sally tagged me for a restaurant meme. My favorites in Atlanta, GA will~ no surprise~ include chocolate for dessert as that's my main criterion for where we spend our eating out dollars. ;-)

Here are the meme rules:

*Link to the name of the person that tagged you
*Include state and country you live in
*List top 5 favorite local restaurants
*Tag 5 other people and let them know they've been tagged

1. My top restaurant choice is Chateau √Član. We don't get there often because white linen table clothes, fine China, and three kids don't mix. But they have melt in your mouth filet mignon and all their desserts (even the ones without chocolate) are amazing.
2. Next would be TGI Fridays. Their chocolate brownie concoction is incredible! Plus, my kiddos love their pizza and chocolate dirt sundaes.
3. Macaroni Grill is another favorite. My kids love their pizza (see, one family theme I'm not responsible for instigating) and I enjoy their seafood and pasta. The bread to tide us over until the meal comes and getting to color on the paper tablecloths over linen ones are nice kid-friendly perks.
4. Starbucks is actually my kinda place to eat. Lots of yummy chocolate and some pretty good sandwiches if I'm trying to be healthy.
5. But my all-time favorite place to eat is my dining room. My hubby is a master chef and the fact that he enjoys cooking (I don't really) and does so because he loves me makes the food all the more wonderful.

I'm tagging:
Laurie, because everybody else tagged her. ;-)

Amy R., because Heather and Sally tagged her too.

Jen, because she needs to start blogging again.

David because, well, because I can. LOL

Meg, because I want to hear her recommendations.
And if you have some great places with awesome chocolate to recommend, let me know in the comments!

Amy, I just found your blog through Shelfari! Anyway, I love this meme and I am linking you to my blog (The Chat 'n' Chew Cafe'--how appropriate) with this one, even if you didn't tag me.

Colleen Coble, Diann Hunt and Denise Hunter--all fellow Hoosiers like me--insist the best chocolate (truffles, no less) is DeBrand's in Ft. Wayne, IN. It's good. I still love the place where we got pralines on River Street in Savannah. Yum. That's fur piece from Indiana, though.

Hey, Crystal!

I'm so glad you came over from Shelfari! Thanks for linking me too and joining the meme.

I have never had DeBrand's chocolate and I'm wondering more and more what I'm missing out on. ;-) I'll have to check into them a little more seriously.
